Another gager said this on one of my questions. This true?

This totally depends on the talent. I for one don't find gag humour funny. I like sarcastic wit. This means almost half of American humour to me is quite stupid, and half of Brit humour is stupid. It all depends. I love Ricky Gervais but hated Benny Hill. I love Louis CK, but hate Adam Sandler.1

I think anyone who says that likely hasn't experienced the truly great stuff. I said to the person who made the comment that Friends was lapped up for some reason in the UK but it is not the best example by a long shot.
MAD Magazine I think is the pinnacle. For television, you have Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Frasier, The Simpsons and Duckman among the greats.
I have to note that some British comedy I found downright depressing (The Royle Family) and that comes from someone raised by British parents to have a very strong appreciation of not just Python but Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Only Fools and Horses, and more.0
